I hope Camp can find someone who can really provide the type of offensive direction we need.

Could someone in Columbia goand check if Roper’s Christmas tree is out by the trash like Jimbo’s? Coach BMac will be our offensive coordinator at the bowl game with Bentley doing the running backs. We do have Rico back as well.
Who will the replacement be?

Agreed! Bentley is at the same level he was when he played his first year. We need to develop our young talent or we will never reach the next level.

At the very least, Muschamp has it narrowed down to a couple of guys.

Longo is interesting.  Only two years of data on him at Ole Miss, but he put up good numbers there.  They still lost a lot of games however because they couldn't stop anybody.

No "co-coordinators" please.  It ain't easy but if you can get a guy that can average 6 yards per play and convert 3rd downs at 40+% you will win a lot of games.  A LOT.  

 

We need an OC who understands MoneyBall.

He is interesting.  I think that would be a "B" hire and not an "A" hire, but interesting.
